A grilled or roasted pork tenderloin is delicious with a fresh salsa. The flavours of the mango and avocado pair beautifully with the pork. Searing the pork maintains the juices. Since the avocado is marinated with the lemon juice, this salsa is fine, made early in the day.
1 ½ lb pork tenderloin (one or two small)
¾ cup finely diced mango
½ cup finely diced ripe avocado
¼ cup finely diced red bell pepper
3 Tbsp finely diced red onion
3 Tbsp chopped cilantro
2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp minced jalapeno pepper
1 tsp lemon juice

- In a bowl, combine mango, avocado, bell pepper, onion, cilantro, oil, jalapeno, juice and salt. Slice pork thinly and spoon salsa over top.
